In My Mailbox Oct 25

This is a weekly meme inspired by Kristi at The Story Siren.  In it we share what books arrived at our house via mail, bookstore or library. I had a pretty good week! Bought some and got some.

Books I bought at the book fair at my school:

Dead is the New Black by Marlene Perez
Never Slow Dance With a Zombie by E. Van Lowe
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days by Jeff Kinney
Gym Candy by Carl Deuker
All the Lovely Bad Ones by Mary Downing Hahn
Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy by Ally Carter

For review:

Fallen!!!!!!! by Lauren Kate I can't believe I got this!
The Illustrated Guide to Mythical Creatures
Explorer X-Alpha by L.M. Preston

I won the t-shirt.  Pretty cool isn't it?
And I had to give a full shot of Never Slow Dance just because I think is looks so fun! And because I've been telling my students that zombies are the new vampire. Look around - they are!

Lastly my owl of the week.  I found this cute OWL bag at Target.  It works perfect for a new diaper bag. Although my sister said I was just using needing a new diaper bag as an excuse to get it. (but really my old one was stained!)


  1. Congrats on getting Fallen I can't wait till that one comes out!

  2. FALLEN looks wonderful, hope it lives up to expectations! I love the Gallagher Girls books as well!

  3. OMG, FAllen!!! I think I would've fainted on the spot. Your other books are so great and I added a couple to my goodreads to read list!! Thanks for the post

  4. You've gotten some great books this past week -- "Fallen" was soooo good!

    And the owl bag -- to die for! So cute!
